Jhené Aiko Efuru Chilombo (born March 16, 1988), is an American Pop/R&B singer/song writer. She was formerly signed to T.U.G./Epic Records, but left to continue her education. She was also well known as "Lil' Fizz's cousin", however, she is not related to him. It was used as a marketing tool suggested by Chris Stokes to promote her through B2K and attract audience, but they were close like family. On December 16, 2011, Jhené signed a recording contract with No I.D.'s record label Artium distributed through Def Jam Recordings.
